Synopsis

Set in Indonesia, the film follows the absurd journeys of a father who is desperate to win a green card lottery, an ex-national badminton champion, a young girl who believes that Chinese firecrackers expel ghosts, and five other people who try to fit into society for the hope of a better life.

Our take

Well-known for his avant-garde shorts, experimental (and mononymous!) Indonesian filmmaker Edwin expands his scope with this IFFR prizewinner: a darkly comic chronicle of a Chinese woman adrift in Indonesia, structured in vignettes then arranged in patterns and parallels.
